Three days ago, a small envelope arrived in our mailbox, addressed to a man who lived here before we did - and before the people who preceded us. We have no forwarding address, so I wrote that on the envelope and put it back in our mailbox.
On Friday, I checked the mail, and found the same envelope. As I thought it was some kind of invitation, I opened it - and found a "save-the-date" card for a wedding to be held in July. On it was a wedding website address, which I located and left a message that the man doesn't live at this address now - and we have no idea where he is.
Having been a wedding florist, as well as the mother of two brides, I know how important responses can be when you are planning a wedding. So I left a note telling the happy couple that their intended recipient did not get the save-the-date. I suspect she will try to track him down.
Would you have done the same thing? Or was opening the envelope the wrong thing to do?
